Ingredients:

  • 1 can tuna
  • 1/2 cup tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup finely dice cucumber
  • 1/2 avocado mashed with a fork
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, except the wrap, and stir until well combined.  Place half of the mixture in the center of the large whole wheat tortilla.  Fold the bottom 1/4 of the way up.  Fold over each of the end and then roll tightly from the bottom to the top.  Serve and enjoy or take to go.  If you can't fit all the ingredients in the wrap, then serve the remaining mixture as a side salad.  Serves 1 large or 2 small.
